“Airlift” director working on drama films

Mumbai – Director Raja Krishna Menon, who is basking in the glory of “Airlift” is working on a couple of ideas for making a drama.

Menon’s last release on the biggest airlift evacuation of Indians from Kuwait was a huge success. Now, he has started working on his next film.

“I am working on three-four different ideas. Out of this, one is a real-life incident story like “Airlift”. It’s an interesting story but I can’t give details about it,” Menon told PTI.

“While the other two are fictional stories. But all films are (from) drama (category),” he said.

Menon also has been approached to direct the Hindi remake version of hit Hollywood film “Chef” that would have actor Saif Ali Khan in the lead.

“I am yet to decide on it (directing “Chef”). All I know is that the makers are yet to decide on the leading lady. The film is likely to go on floors later this year,” he added.
